Since Typhoon Morakotin in 2009, the Pingtung County Government has been working to boost green power development and improve the sustainability of land use in the county. Pingtung is the only county in Chinese Taipei committed to becoming 100% renewable. Its goal is for citizens to use 100% green-powered electricity as the first step in the energy transition. Currently, setting up solar photovoltaics (PV) zones in subsidence areas is a key strategy to ensure sustainable land use while achieving its green energy target.
This case study is part of the 100% Renewables Case Study Series.
